Come on, Camelina: The Digest’s 2019 Multi-Slide Guide to Camelina’s Potential Yield


Camelina is one of those fascinating feedstocks but often the yields aren’t high enough to be profitable for farmers. That’s a problem Kristi Snell from Yield10 Bioscience is tackling by developing a camelina feedstock with significantly increased seed yield and/or seed oil content to maximize oil yields per acre using a genome editing technology as part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office presentations. Check out their approach, technical accomplishments and results so far like a 39% increase in seed yield per plant, and more.
